I focuses on raising high-quality honeybees from genetics proven to perform well for us here in Pennsylvania. After multiple evaluations and intense selection criteria for several highly-valued traits, I identifies the top queens in our colonies from which to rear drones and to graft larvae to produce daughter queens for our own use. I do treat for mites at very high levels but only if I think the hive will die , because we want bees which take care of themselves without much help from us and which perform well while we work them hard.
We love helping the small hobbyist beekeeper who may only need one or two queens once or twice a year, but with enough advance notice we can produce very large volumes of high-quality laying queens for commercial beekeepers too.
Nucleus Hives (Nucs)
I also offer five frame nucleus colonies headed by our young laying queens from high-quality Breeders. We can sell a single nuc or very large orders, but nucleus colonies require resources and time, so they must be planned for in advance. We notify customers early of dates and locations for nucleus colony pick-up.
Generally, nucleus colonies require customer pick-up in central Pa or at pre-coordinated times and locations. Inquire if you want a large number of nucs.
Please give testimonials as to how your service was and or how your Queens Or Nucs are doing or not doing if that is the case. I will leave all reasonable testimonials posted good or bad. I want to have all my customers to be happy so if you do have a problem please let me see if it can be corrected so we both come away feeling good.
